Alexis and Jim Bellino are no longer a couple as they decided to get a divorce, but it seems like they are still friendly to one another and support each other through the divorce process. The former Real Housewives of Orange County stars released a joint statement today, addressing last week’s announcement that they are splitting.
‘It is important to us that you know we made this choice together, with love, and as the best decision for our children’s future. We hold one another in the highest regards as spouses, and especially as parents. We have agreed on 50/50 custody of the children, and we ask that you respect our privacy by not theorizing about the reasons for our divorce,’ the statement shared with ET reads.
As fans may be aware, the two have three kids together – Mackenna, Melania, and James.
They also insisted that there is ‘nothing provocative, alluring, or sordid about the dissolution of our marriage. Quite to the contrary, we strongly support each other just as we have since the beginning of our relationship. Our marriage was good, but we were never perfect people nor spouses —no one is really, and in this respect, we were a lot like millions of other married people.’
‘And, just like millions of other married people, we grew apart over time — there is no ill will or bad blood between us.’
They also said that they ‘ultimately want you to feel happy for us, respect our privacy during this difficult time, and pray for our mutual benefit as we weather this storm.’
As they concluded their statement, the exes, made sure to thank their loyal fans.
‘We’re grateful for how you cheer us on — we ask that you continue to cheer as our lives and the lives of our children change and ultimately improve as a result of this difficult decision.’
